Fraunhofer IAF

Semiconductors – building blocks for innovation.

Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF

High frequency circuits for communication technology, energy-efficient voltage converter modules for electromobility, laser systems for spectroscopy, innovative hardware for quantum computing and diamond-based quantum sensors – this is only a small selection of the developments with which Fraunhofer IAF is advancing the research and development of innovative semiconductor technologies.

The Fraunhofer IAF is one of the world's leading research institutions in the fields of III-V semiconductors and synthetic diamond. Based on these materials, we develop components for future-oriented technologies. With its research and development, the Freiburg research institute covers the entire value chain - from materials research, design and processing to modules, systems and demonstrators.
